Our goal is to teach young children to swim in a positive, safe, and loving environment. We recognize that each child is an individual with different emotional and developmental abilities and we cater each lesson to those needs. In addition to teaching the lifesaving skills of swimming, we also strive to develop each child’s self-esteem, confidence and love for the water. Beginner class ratios are 3:1, the lowest in town, and our parents enjoy a comfortable air conditioned viewing experience. Next, is our unique indoor pool that is temperature controlled (water and air), the water has a salt chlorine duel computer controlled system with an ultraviolet sanitizer. Combine all of this with wave-less gutters and underwater music for a beginner’s paradise.

AKSC swim staff are Red Cross certified and receive constant training so that you can be assured quality instruction. We focus on making swimming safer, fun, and enjoyable, because creating a happy swimmer is a gift that lasts a lifetime! 

We are a 5-star member of the US Swim School Association.
